As News 18 has previously reported, state health officials say the number of flu-related deaths in IN is now at 25.

According to the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department, the child was 18-months-old. On a call with reporters, state epidemiologist Dr. Gil Chavez said the season may be on of the worst in a decade.

The State Department of Health only reports flu deaths in counties if there are more than 5 confirmed flu-related deaths.

The overall impact can vary greatly year to year, but flu always takes a substantial toll.

ODH also is reporting more than 1,700 new confirmed flu-associated hospitalizations in OH during the first week of January, a significant increase over 925 reported during the last week of December.

It's not clear yet how effective this year's flu vaccine will be, as federal data on that won't be available till February.

Still, CDC officials and other experts continue to say vaccination is the best bet, and not too late. Even if the vaccine takes a couple weeks to reach full effectiveness, it should offer some quicker protection, she said.

Symptoms of flu can include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

The state has seen over 3,800 flu-associated hospitalizations this season.

Anyone who is particularly at risk - including the elderly and those with heart and/or lung conditions - should seek immediate medical attention if they show flu-like symptoms.
